    She was sold to me as a Black Cooper Marans but now that she is 25 wks old I don't think she is
    She still isn't laying

    Looks like a Cuckoo Marans, or Cuckoo Marans mix. Judging by her comb/wattle development and body shape (she's filled out nicely), she should begin laying soon!

    That's what I was thinking---how do you know she's not laying? She might not be a dark egg layer.

    x2 ....and she might be a sneaky layer....new pullets often lay in unexpected places. Go on an easter egg hunt to see if she might be laying somewhere other than the nest box.
